May-06-04  Grobber: This game must be completely wrong ! Black can take Whites rook off with Re1.

  vonKrolock: <Grobber> in another on-line source ( final position is same as here, whith Black to play and wins a Rook. A volume of Alekhine's or Bk's games can perhaps clarify the question. (Error in the game-score or in its trancription; draw agreed in conditions of grand time pressure?!)
Apr-21-05  soberknight: Black does not win a rook by 51...Re1+. He only can force an exchange of rooks, which would actually let white win.

The final position is, of course, a "Book draw."

Dec-23-08  WhiteRook48: so boring old book moves can hold Alekhine into a draw.
Dec-23-08  AnalyzeThis: In fairness, it wasn't boring. The guy played well.
Jan-24-09  WhiteRook48: I'm rather amused that someone took me seriously. I was joking. What's rather weird is that Book drew Alekhine.
Feb-21-09  WhiteRook48: Deep Fritz probably would have played 51...Ka5, therefore drawing with a book move
